News




     The news machine crashed with a "memory error" early this morning.

     This is unusual since these machines have hamming and parity and generally
are able to correct all single bit errors and most double bit errors; and this
wasn't the "normal" message either.

     Memory all passed hardware diagnostics, however, the machine was smashed
up against a wall covering the intake vents and this may have caused it to
overheat.

     It is up and running but since it wasn't shut down properly file system
checks were necessary and they take many hours to perform on the news spool.

     The machine is processing UUCP traffic.

     News processing should resume monday morning sometime.
